Design cycles for a given driving mission

ByS. Kharrazi, L. Nielsen, E. Frisk

Representative driving cycles are of key importance for design and dimensioning of powertrains. One approach for generation of representatives driving cycles is to define relevant driving missions which include different street types, obstacles and traffic conditions, and simulate them in a traffic simulation tool. Such a simulation approach will also require representative driver models to generate the speed profiles for the defined driving missions. Feasibility of this approach is investigated in this paper.
